On September 4, 2012, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) published final regulations (Final Regulations) establishing the Stage 2 meaningful use criteria for the Medicare and Medicaid Electronic Health Records (EHR) Incentive Programs (EHR Incentive Programs). Among other things, these Final Regulations delay the onset of the Stage 2 meaningful use criteria, amend certain of the Stage 1 meaningful use criteria, implement Medicare payment adjustments beginning in 2015 based on the prior year’s data, and expand eligibility for the Medicaid EHR Incentive Program. In light of these changes, providers would be well advised to evaluate their current EHR adoption and implementation strategies.
